The key word in the sentence above is 'our'.  These rules are 
somebody's.  They are not 'ours'.  They certainly aren't mine.

What we have now is a set of rules for which I can decipher no rational 
explanation.  I have seen changes requested that have been rejected 
without providing a reason.  Now that the rules have been tightened up 
on rejection, I see clocks being reset.

At this time I want the priorities on bug 7034 and 7468 to be raised, 
and am asking my co-chairs to join me in that request.
